Fullmetal Alchemist: The Complete Four-Panel Comics Debuts from VIZ Media March 12

Fullmetal Alchemist: Complete Four-Panel Comics

VIZ Media has announced a new addition to one of manga’s greatest series with the release of Fullmetal Alchemist: The Complete Four-Panel Comics on March 12th.

The Fullmetal Alchemist: The Complete Four-Panel Comics features a complete collection of four-panel comic strips from Hiromu Arakawa’s original Fullmetal Alchemist series (which is published in English by VIZ Media) and never-before-seen bonus strips from Japan. The title is rated ‘T’ for Teens and carries a print MSRP of $12.99 U.S. / $17.99 CAN.

In an alchemical ritual gone wrong, Edward Elric lost his arm and his leg, and his brother Alphonse became nothing but a soul in a suit of armor. Though the Elric brothers’ circumstances are tragic, in these spoofs penned by author Hiromu Arakawa, the duo’s quest to reclaim their bodies is completely hilarious!

Viz Announces a Whole Bunch of New Manga and Literary Acquisitions

VIZ Media announced plans to expand its publishing catalog with newly acquired titles this past weekend at Anime Expo 2017 in Los Angeles.

Set for publication beginning in early 2018, the new manga titles include Fire Punch, a dystopian thriller that will launch under the VIZ Signature imprint, and the gender-swapping shojo manga series Kenka Bancho Otome: Girls Beats Boys. Manga additions also include the classic bestselling series FullMetal Alchemist, which returns in a hardcover collector’s edition. Sisyphean was announced as the latest novel to join the Haikasoru literary imprint, and a pair of titles—a haiku volume and an activity book—inspired by the global hit mobile game Neko Atsume: Kitty Collector also join the VIZ Media roster.

Additional information on each of these titles will be announced in the near future.

New VIZ Media Publishing Acquisitions for 2018

FIRE PUNCH · Rated ‘M’ For Mature Audiences · Available January 2018

In the not-too-distant past, the Ice Witch blanketed the world in snow, starvation and madness, leading the inhabitants to seek their salvation in fire.

FIRE PUNCH was a nominee for the 2017 Manga Taisho Award.

 

SISYPHEAN (Novel) · Unrated · Available January 2018

In this award-winning novel by Dempow Torishima, even after the world and humanity itself have been rendered nearly unrecognizable by genetic engineering, a day in the office can feel…Sisyphean. The company stands atop a tiny deck supported by huge iron columns a hundred meters high. The boss there is its president – a large creature of unstable, shifting form once called “human.” The world of his dedicated worker contains only the deck and the sea of mud surrounding it, and the worker’s daily routine is anything but peaceful. A mosaic novel of extreme science and high weirdness, Sisyphean will change the way you see existence itself. Sisyphean was a winner of the prestigious Japan SF Award and also nominated for a Seiun Award.
